Seattle Mayor and Washington Governor Try Pulling Rank on President Trump


President Donald Trump has made it very clear that he intends to stake a claim for himself as a “law and order” leader, but not everyone appears to be onboard with that idea.

In Seattle, this push for enforced peace has been highlighted by a strange set of circumstances, after protesters took advantage of the 13th police precinct’s retreat from the Capital Hill area, turning six blocks of the city into the “Capital Hill Autonomous Zone”, and declaring that this area was no longer a part of the United States.

President Trump was quick to respond, telling leaders in Seattle that they would need to rein in the “#CHAZ”, or else he would take action.  This didn’t sit well with Washington Governor Jay Inslee or the Mayor of Seattle.

In another tweet, he said “Domestic Terrorists have taken over Seattle”, saying Washington Governor Jay Inslee was “looking ‘the fool'”.

Mr Inslee tweeted back: “A man who is totally incapable of governing should stay out of Washington state’s business.”

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan defended the right to protest and told President Trump: “Make us all safe. Go back to your bunker.”

“The threat to invade Seattle, to divide and incite violence in our city, is not only unwelcome, it would be illegal,” she added.

For now, the war of the words between Washington and Washington will continue.
